Nothing feels better than coming to a clean and tidy home, but after winter, our homes are a little messy and need a round of deep cleaning. Many people wait till March in order to clean every corner of the house, but this process could be overwhelming and time-consuming, especially for those who have full-time jobs. The only option you have is too deep clean a room or two over the weekend until the end of March.
Spring cleaning on the weekends can be the best idea to deep clean your house in phases, however, it might disrupt your plans and be a problem if you face a power outage. The folks at Ablesales recommend having a backup generator at home for emergencies. That way you will be able to keep your appliances up and running along with your cleaning devices and you won’t need to postpone your spring cleaning till the power comes back. If you’re not sure where to start with spring cleaning, you’ll probably need a plan to ensure that you don’t miss a spot. Here’s a complete guide to deep cleaning your house:
How to Deep Clean Your House
Start with the Boxes
The first step for spring cleaning is to prepare some empty boxes. You’ll need to create a box for the stuff you’ll donate, one for the things that need repair, and a put-away box. When you’re cleaning and you find something you want to donate or needs to be fixed, you’ll put it to one of the boxes beside you, instead of putting it in a corner and creating another pile of mess. The put-away box will be for the things that you find while cleaning and need to be put back in their place.
Make a Plan
Before you start the cleaning process, create a plan of what to clean first and when. Make time for each room. For example, allocate an hour for the bedroom, one hour for the bathroom, and another two for the kitchen. Determine how long it takes to clean the room by how messy it is or how much effort it may take. That way you’ll know how long it will take to clean the entire house and whether you’ll be able to finish it before the end of the month or not.
Create a List
Before you start your spring cleaning journey, make a list of all the products that you may need. Doing a quick round-up of the products that you already have at home and determine what you need to purchase. Having everything on hand at home, before you start, will ensure you don’t have to stop in the middle of the cleaning process because you ran out of a certain product.
Spring cleaning can sound like a lot of effort, but with the right mindset and proper planning, this process will go smoothly. However, if you’re too busy to deep clean the house at once, you can clean small areas on different days or you could hire a professional cleaning service to do the job for you.
